Riding the coattails of the mid-1990s trend of combining reggae and alternative rock, Slightly Stoopid is s six-piece band from San Diego that has enjoyed a period of long-lasting success due in large part to its disinterest in straying from its characteristic sound. The band's ska-tinged reggae/rock sound, a style spearheaded by the likes of Sublime and 311, captured widespread attention first in San Diego and then across the country with its sun-soaked acoustic guitar riffs and laid-back vibe. Slightly Stoopid released its eponymous debut album, stylized as Slightly $toopid, in 1996 when it was still a duo, though the band slowly grew into into an eight-piece collective with each passing album. By the mid 2000s, the band had adopted a slew of musicians including a conga player, harpist, trumpeter and saxophinist, resulting in its multi-genre 2005 album, Closer to the Sun. Slightly Stoopid now operates its own label, the aptly-titled Stoopid Records, which it uses to release its albums as well as those of like-minded up-and-coming bands.
